Adult Shoot Prompts Halt to All Production at LA Schools

LOS ANGELES—The Los Angeles Unified School District announced Thursday that all commercial production on Los Angeles public school campuses was temporarily suspended in the wake of the revelation that an adult movie was partially shot at LA's Alexander Hamilton High School in 2011. This information came to the LAUSD's attention by way of an extensive investigation into the use of schools as production locations conducted by NBC4 news. The investigation uncovered that Hamilton High had served as the location on two consecutive Saturdays in October 2011 for AMKingdom's Revenge of the Petites. NBC4 reported that LAUSD had learned of the nature of the shoot shortly after it occurred and immediately notified AMKingdom that it was banned from ever using LA school properties again and ordered the company to remove any images of the school from the movie. The overall thrust of NBC4's ongoing investigation has been to weigh the general disruption production presents to the educational process. In light of the news outlet's reports, LAUSD superintended Ramon Cortines issued the following statement Thursday: "I recently asked the District’s Inspector General to examine filming activities at our schools, and that review is under way. I have also asked staff to review existing practices and, if necessary, to update the District’s procedures. As such, I have decided to temporarily suspend all commercial filming at our schools. "It is important that we ensure teaching and learning are not disrupted, and that all filming activity is appropriate for our schools. As an organization responsible for educating students, it is essential that we hold ourselves and our schools to a high standard."
